Make It

Tap or click steps to mark as complete

  • Heat grill to medium-high heat.
  • Mix first 4 ingredients until blended. Combine remaining ingredients in large bowl. Add dressing mixture; mix lightly.
  • Spoon onto 4 large sheets heavy-duty foil; fold to make 4 packets.
  • Grill 35 min. or until potatoes are tender. Cut slits in foil to release steam before opening packets.

How to Test for Doneness

To test for doneness, remove packets from heat; carefully open packets (watching out for steam), then pierce potatoes with sharp knife. Potatoes are done when knife easily pierces the potatoes. Reseal packets and return to grill if necessary.


Prepare using your favorite homemade pesto. Or, prepare using store-bought pesto. Look for it in the refrigerated section of your supermarket.

    We loved the flavors together. I put it in a casserole dish in the oven...wonderful :) Did not use the pesto as I didn't have the ingredients on hand...but loved it just the same. Will try with the pesto the next time.

    I made this in the oven instead of on the grill, and it turned out just fine. When I make it again, I'll reduce the pesto (or eliminate it altogether) -- I like pesto, but it just doesn't seem to work in this, at least not in the amount specified in the recipe. I made the recipe exactly as specified, except I put the foil packets on a baking sheet (with a 1/2" lip), and baked 35 minutes at 425 degrees F. The potatoes were cooked through, and the flavors melded well.

    Can you leave out the pesto? Can it be cooked in the oven?
